New statistics released by the CHRO show that in the last year, claims of discrimination and harassment are up overall.  For employers, that means more “visits” — at least virtually through e-mail, from the agency.

But what should you do when you get such a complaint from the CHRO? Well, a few things. The first, don’t panic. Second, call your attorney. And third, maybe you want to listen in on a webinar we are running next week on this very topic.

The webinar, which is absolutely free of charge (seriously, you can’t get better than that), is a CLE program on what employers should know about the CHRO and EEOC process and procedure. It’s set for November 12, 2019 at noon.  You can register here.

We are looking forward to sharing some of the insights that were recently given by a senior CHRO official at a bar association event.  Among them – the pet peeves of CHRO investigators like when employers wait until the day of a fact-finding to provide documents that have been requested weeks earlier.

There’s still room to sign up for the hour-long program. See you (at least virtually) then.
